Reading Time: 2 minutes

The primary objective of CRM solutions is to simplify business processes. According to a survey, 20% of CRM users said learning to use a CRM software was a major challenge. Thus, to overcome this challenge, there should be a dedicated person who can manage CRM data, can create reports, do customizations and provides supports to end users.

Here are six reasons why your business needs a CRM administrator.

  1. Improves User Adoption

User adoption is a pivotal factor for successful CRM implementation. Most of the CRM implementation fails because the users are clueless as to how to use the system. In this case, administrator comes as a boon, as s/he can encourage user adoption by explaining the various benefits of the CRM system.

  1. Educates Users

If users fail to use the system, it is a loss to company. Sales team cannot generate leads and service team cannot answer customer queries. Hence, the primary job of administrator is educating users about how to use system and instill confidence in them. An administrator can devise best practices every CRM user has to follow to get the best output.

  1. Hands-On Approach

Administrators provide a hands-on approach to most frequent CRM security and privacy related issues, integration issues, slowness issues etc. An administrator can manage multiple roles like programmer, coordinator, manager, etc.

  1. Help meet the needs of business

Administrator can design CRM application to meet specific business demands. A business may ask to target a specific customer segment or they might want to track high value opportunities through the sales funnel report. Administrator can perform these tasks in CRM.

  1. Improves CRM Security

Security is the main reason why most of the businesspersons are worried about using software as a service CRM module. To minimize the risk, CRM administrator can install security patches, certificates on server. He can carry out audits on regular basis to ensure system is performing at its optimum best and is free from any kind of malware or virus. He can set up various security profiles, which will restrict users to view data based on their roles only.

  1. Works Directly With Vendors

Administrators work closely with CRM vendors and are often the first to find out about software changes and updates. Moreover, they can bridge the gap between the vendor and end users.

Dealing with complex CRM issues can be difficult and thus, delegating these duties to an experienced administrator would benefit businesses that rely on CRM software to generate leads, engage with customers and increase sales.
